Horrocks Wood, 13th June 2015

Well the threat of the Bolton monsoon never materialised and it remained a pleasantly warm summers morning on the hillside, high above the town.  Clive Atty normally plays in a band on Saturday morning but a few weeks ago he approached me to say he could organise an event as today was a scheduled band holiday.  We returned to Horrocks Wood for only the second time.  The Forestry Commission area was only constructed about 10 years ago and now offers a great place for recreation.  The woodland continues to develop and perhaps some of you found the undergrowth a little challenging in places. Perhaps one or two demonstrated a clear sign of superior intelligence in not opting for the 2nd lap on the technical course!

Well done to everyone and in particular our course winners today Theo Middleton, Robert Seddon and John Embrey.  We had two junior newcomers today - Alex Walkden and Beth Jones.  For the results of the event click here

Our next event is next weekend when we have our double sprint in Horwich. Well worth checking out as the roads are closed in the town centre for us to have a mass start sprint race.  Check out the final details here.

Then we will be having the final saturday morning before the summer break at Crompton Moor, Oldham on Saturday 18th July.
